Something must be in the air but I am really feeling hot wall covering right now. Not long ago I wrote about some really impressive faux textured wall paper. Not only were they beautiful to look at but a pleasure to touch. Since then I have been paying close attention to all the new products that are on the market for wall coverings. Today I am excited because Settecento has a new line out called “Croco-Tiles” (Cute right?)
Settecento, an Italian mosaic and ceramic tile company established in 1969 is a huge producer of cutting edge of mosaic tiles. Here we see them displayed as wall coverings, but trust me, the applications are endless. In Europe, there are gaining the reputation of the “it” company for mosaic and ceramic tiles, and I can see why.
The collection is divided into two subcategories: The Croco-Classic which are the darker shades and the Croco-Joy are much brighter, colorful ones. You can get creative and spice up the solid colors by adding a Decoro Wave or a Decoro Point to the tiles. The Wave forms a vertical wavelike shape that is placed off-center with a different Crocotile color. The Point is a similar wave concept except the tile of a different color is placed in a circular formation. Delightful!
I had the opportunity to speak with someone in their office and guess what…. it available in the US market. Yeah!
